Like most (if not all) Australian marsupials, wombats are goofy not-so-little creatures weighing anywhere between 20 to 35 kg according to Wikipedia’s wombat article. They have goofy ears, funny noses, and sweet eyes, and certainly look incredibly huggable. I would love the opportunity to hug one, wouldn’t you?

Have you ever heard of a bilby? A bilby is another kind of marsupial native to Australia. They are also known as rabbit-eared bandicoots. According to Wikipedia’s bilby article, these cuties are burrowers that build extensive tunnel systems in order to protect themselves from predators and heat.
Look at those ears! This bilby is soooooo adorable! I just want to cuddle with our bilby pal!

Have you guys ever heard of a monito del monte? Well, a monito del monte is a nocturnal marsupial native to Chile and Argentina. According to Wikipedia’s article, they measure between 11 and 12.5cm in length and their tail – measuring between 9 and 10cm – is almost as long as the rest of their body. Well, what do you guys think? I think the monito del monte is absolutely adorable. Look at that bubblegum pink nose! Oh my!

Have you guys ever heard of a numbat before? This is the first time I’ve personally ever heard of one. Numbats are, as the title says, marsupials. These guys have super long tongues (like anteaters) with which they eat termites and occasionally other ants. According to australian-animals.net, numbats, unlike other marsupials, do not have a pouch. Instead, their young cling to their belly fur, where they have access to milk.
So, what do you guys think of numbats? Aren’t they cuties?
